Being apart of the Forney Independent School District meant being apart of another family outside of home. Our community, teachers, staff, and students always came together to support each other during the good and bad. Being an athlete in Forney, seeing everyone come together to support our volleyball team at every game and cheer so loud is something I will never forget. One of our slogans is "Forney Family", which is exactly what it feels like when you're apart of the Forney Independent School District.

Forney ISD has many opportunities to be a good school district but they lack in giving their students the best experience possible while in high school. The school district is heavily involved in Forney High School while they lack giving attention to North Forney High School in areas such as academics, security, and activities/clubs. Although the administration pays better attention to sports they mainly support the Football team.
I loved how Forney prepared me to take on new and challenging responsibilities. The counselors were always looking out for my best interests along with any personal experiences that I would have trouble with. The teachers are one of a kind, they helped me to become more independent and kept me on my toes with interesting lessons everyday. I found that it was easier to be more involved with my grades in skyward (a student portal) and stay on top of any assignments and projects I had. There were many different school events that kept me involved and looking forward to the next school day. The principals were always extremely approachable and kind however they were also firm but fair in their punishments of rule breaking. The variety in classes keep school days from being dull and irrelevant because of the uniqueness of my personalized schedule.
